thanks! I plan either to make an edge valance fit my chrome bumper or wait till I find an stx bumper.. someday it may go lower or I might go back up.. it will have to wait for a real job..

It's where I drank my first beer
It's where I found Jesus
Where I wrecked my first car
I tore it all to pieces
I learned the path to heaven is full of sinners and believers
Learned that happiness on earth ain't just for high achievers
I've learned I've come to know
There's life at both ends
Of that red dirt road

Yeah. I love the speed though. Lowered just makes more sense in the city.. Lifted was fun, but I want atleast a v6 if I lift again. Plan is to bag this truck and lift a v6.. best of both worlds.. need my own garage first.

Hey, you saw my truck in person, what do you think: Flares or No Flares? cant remember if I asked you. I think without flares would be more old skool look, but with flares is very unique..


The FX2.3 decals are getting removed this weekend, hopefully clean the rear up a bit.. and maybe some honeycomb for the bumper..

I love the exhaust on that truck. Kind of an old school look with the wheels and tires.

That truck looks awesome! Nice work!!

Might get some spacers from pepboys and see what it looks like..

After work I bought myself a torque wrench and found a good top for my drafting table.. finished building about 3 hours later..


^used my jack to make sure it was level before I screwed on the legs.. 3 ton jack to make a table!



about $30 in supplies..
